Fireplace Make-overs

Changing the look of a fireplace can add to the value of your home.  Brick and grout styles and colors change over the years.  Many owners give up and paint fireplaces a solid color.  I can change the colors of both brick and grout, saving you money over having to completely redo the fireplace.

Here are some other fireplace makeovers.  Some were unpainted, precast concrete.  Others were plain drywall.  Others were bricks previously painted.
